Have iPads replaced conversations in family circles? When infants see their parents spending great amounts of time on their smart-phones or looking at screens, what impression does that make on them? Renowned clinical psychologist Catherine Steiner-Adair states that the majority of families are in crisis in relation to these issues. Distractions and disconnects caused by ‘tech gadgets’ have deep, lasting, and serious effects on brain development and communication skills. Children and adults need significant interaction with those around them. Steiner-Adair offers profound insights and much-needed advice for parents, counselors, and teachers concerning what needs to take place in living rooms and class rooms. Parents and people in general need to put down the iPads, come to the family dinner table, and talk, smile, and hug!
